Look closely to spot the many details included in the panorama of the siege, which lasted from 1854 to 1855.

    Interesting. Brightly. Qualitatively done. But the historical Boulevard around the building with the panorama was not pleasant. All forgotten and abandoned, monuments and istoricheskte the place in shambles.

    Nothing beats the first sensation when only just climbed on a platform preview images up to breathtaking! It's really worth to see. Taking pictures is useless, the photo is absolutely not transferable scale panoramas. Particularly impressed by playing with light, do not even believe that it's all natural light.
